Welcome to Pimm Industries showing of it’s new cyborg racer. Internally coded the M6-CBR, it is better known as “No More Tears”.
About this creation
Dr. Pimm’s love for music is no secret. One of his favourite genres being heavy metal, especially from the 20th Century. Not satisfied with simple recordings, he tracked down the genetic material of one of his favourites and ‘resurrected’ The Prince of Darkness.
Unfortunately, the genetic material obtained was from very late in this most fantastic of artist’s career, and the results of the cloning procedure were less than ideal. The resultant clone was, to say the least, psychotic. He was running around biting the heads off of any small animal he could find, ranting about ‘coming home’. In addition, he was extremely paranoid, and took to carrying around a pair of light machine guns for protection.
On one of his week long drug induced holidays, he was cleaning one of his ever present body guards and the firearm discharged repeatedly (he had forgotten to take out the belt of ammo in a drug induced haze), and self-amputated both of his legs and destroying the left side of his pelvis.
Dr. Pimm, ever being frugal, decided to save the life of The Prince, and the financial investment made to bring him back to life. So Dr. Pimm had his investment fitted with artificial limbs and a new pelvis. The Prince couldn’t stand this intrusion and, if possible, he stepped even closer to insanity.
He lost any regard for human life and begin to kill anyone whom he though had any intentions of hurting him. This could not be tolerated and The Prince was brought in alive. He had killed a dozen of the Highland Company’s best, and was about to be incinerated, when the chief marketing officer called Dr. Pimm and talked to him about the latest internet craze – cyborg racing.
The decision was made, the money was spent, a racer was built, and The Prince of Darkness underwent extensive surgery to ready him for his new role. The Prince refused to be put to sleep for the surgery, and instead medicated himself.
He screamed through the whole surgery – fourteen-hours none stop; however, the screaming sounded more like ecstasy. Over and over he screamed “I am Ironman!”, which was followed by a maniacal laugh.
The whole scene was so unnerving that one of the junior surgeons committed suicide in the shower after the surgery. Although, it is unclear as to how he managed to rip his own head off at this time – investigations are still ongoing.
The Prince of Darkness is no free to roam the asteroid belts during these high speed runs of insanity. His screams, through a patented projection technology, actually echo through space as he tears through the course. It is unclear as to what he is thinking, but our best psychologist feel that he believes he is performing on stage for his fans.
Whatever he may be thinking is really irrelevant, as he is a winner. At first there were a few problems with competitors being decapitated with machinegun fire, but ever since they developed the must be closer than 50m rule, this has ceased to be a problem.
Unfortunately a few fans have come a little too close and have had their autograph books signed in blood – arterial spray from their own bodies. The exception being lovely young ladies which are always welcome.
Here we present “No More Tears” and The Prince of Darkness, but please don’t stand too close – his bite is worse than his bark.
I dedicate this build to Mr. Ocean may his creativity grace these pages always – thanks for the inspiration.
Still working on figuring out the lighting in my build room, and will be going to the camera store this weekend to pick up some accessory lighting equipment to help make this easier. This was done with an opaque piece of white plastic and a 500watt work light.
I've been thinking that the cyborg racer franchise had been a little void as of late. No longer! Great little racer, great story, (and despite your worries about your photos) great presentation! Thanks for bringing the racers back! ~ Chris.
